June Buffoonery!

Last month we were tickled pink and apple-green to announce
a new collection by THE master of the absurd, Alphonse Allais
. For June, we’re JUST PLAIN pickled to unleash THIS anthology of unadulterated nonsense — nonsense in all its merry infestations,  from subtle emanations to cartoon lunacy.

LE SCAT NOIR BEDSIDE NONSENSE is profusely illustrated and packed with AMUSING stories, songs, games, WORDPLAY & poesy by an international roster of inspired misfits.

Featuring: Mark Axelrod, Tom Barrett, Angie Brenner, Ken Brown, Norman Conquest, Caroline Crépiat, Haley Dahl,  Farewell Debut, Paul Forristal, Ryan Forsythe, Penelope Goddard, Jean-Jacques Grandville, Simon Hanes, Rhys Hughes, Alexei Kalinchuk, KKUURRTT, Rick Krieger, David Moscovich, Jason E. Rolfe, Paul Rosheim, Bob Rucker, Thaddeus Rutkowski, Doug Skinner, Terry Southern, Yuriy Tarnawsky, Tom Whalen, and Carla M. Wilson.

It’s the perfect antidote  for  summer lockdown  — and  no mask required.

LE SCAT NOIR #228 HAS ARRIVED!

As you might imagine, putting out a monthly journal such as LSN requires many man-hours (that may sound sexist but the alternative sounds like crap), i.e., hours of intense labor, stress, irritation, befuddlement, blood, sweat, and farts. September’s “Cryptlipo” issue marked our eleventh month as “the only free journal of its kind in America.” Now, with number 228 heralding a year of digital thrills, LSN becomes “the only journal of its kind in America.” That still says a lot.

Alas, in order to continue publishing we were forced to stamp a small price on our cover, but  we believe you’ll find this issue more than worth the cost of admission. Why, just take a look at all the whiz-bang you get for your buck: stories by Alphonse Allais, Paulo Brito, Eckhard Gerdes, Boris Glikman, Jason E. Rolfe, David Macpherson; poetry by Jeff Begato and Paul Rosheim; sublime translations by Mercie Pedro e Silva and Doug Skinner; incomparable art and photography by Farewell Debut, Jim McMenamin, Quixote, and Gail Schneider; original sheet music by Doug Skinner; a mini-feature film by Terri Lloyd; and a special supplement by Norman Conquest. Plus the features you’ve come to rely on: News in a Nutshell, Musical Instruments, Simple Acts of Sabotage, Madame’s Wicked Pack of Cards, and Trump’s Tweetstorm.
